DESCRIPTION

EC2 API Dynamics owns EC2 instance launch times end to end. We use rich data drawn from services across EC2 to monitor and understand our customer’s launch experience.

As an engineer on our team, you’ll help us to understand our customers launch experience by benchmarking performance, running experiments, detecting anomalies and discovering patterns in how customers interact with us.

You will also make improvements in collaboration with teams across EC2. You’ll get to use data science tools and techniques, and program in various languages that primarily include Java and Python.

Work / Life Balance

Most of our team is based in Cape Town. Under normal circumstances, we mostly work from the office but are very flexible if you need to work from home occasionally.

From time-to-time, we work with our colleagues across the world meaning we accommodate the different time zones.

On-Call Responsibility

We rotate our on-call responsibilities which means that every 4-6 weeks, you would need to be contactable outside of office hours, however, due to the team largely focusing on investigations and monitoring, this rarely happens.

Mentorship & Career Growth

Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team has a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship.

Our senior engineers truly enjoy mentoring more junior engineers and engineers from non-traditional backgrounds through one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews.

We care about your career growth. We try to assign projects and tasks based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.

Inclusive Team Culture

We believe a diverse group of people with different background and experiences are a catalyst to generating a breadth of ideas therefore we do all we can to attract and nurture this in our team.
